joplin...."I hate to be a sour puss but I've just about had it with one bun freezing and the other one just about to burst into flames."
joplin...."If da biped doesn't get busy and find a repairman I'm going to start working on the heater myself."
joplin....."Hey Major! Can you fix a heater with a drill?
major......"Hmmmm, I think you need a big hammer too. Da biped always has a hammer to wack things with."
biped...."I'm not telling the catkids yet (no sense getting their hopes up just in case), but a replacement heater has been found and will be picked up tomorrow. If we're lucky it will be installed on Thursday by the new repairman."
